The encampment of the officers ofihe 1st
Brigade, (atPickensville,) closed on Sat ur
day, we believe with the universal adini
ration of all present, either as officers or
spectators. It was-a striking proof of how
short a time is required to make militia,
good troops. We heard but one remark
from officers of the highest rank down. and
that was, that they had never witnessed
such a drill of militia troops. Indeed.
General MeDuffie, who has just returned
from France, pronounced them equal to
French regulars. General rhompson
commanded, and conducted the drill on
tbe day of review.. We had long admired
him for his talents and eloquence, and
loved him for his thousand private virtues,
but had not supposed, with his other tnany
avocations, that he knew very much of
mailitary affairs ; but lie managed the whole
affairs of the week, and drilled with the
precision and accuracy of one who had
been raised in a camp.
The only unpleasant occurrence, was the
loss of a hand by one of the tmen, (Captain
Robins, of Pickens District.) from the
bursting of a gun. Just before the troops
weore dismissed, they were addressed by
General Thompson upon the subject, and
immediately contributed upiwards o'f two
hundred dollars to the poor man's relief.

BoUNDARY DtsPUTEs.---We clip the
following from the Iowa Gazette and Bur
lington Advertiser, of July 10. It seems
thatour old fellow citizen, of Woolverine
celebrity, has got another boundary strife
upon his head.
Missouri and lowa.-Governor Lucas,
we understand, has been ollicially notified
by the commissioner of Van Buren county,
that the officers of the state of Missouri,
fori the first time, have been engaged in as
sessing the people residing on the territo

and over which, tp to the present time,
% iscousin and lowa have exercised uu
We are no alarmists, but it must be ac
knowledged that the controversy between
this Territory and the state of Missouri, is
beginning to wyear a serious aspect. The
assessment being now made, the next
move of Missouri will be to enforce the
payment of taxes, and thus will have ar
rived ilhe crisis. The duties of the authori
ities of lowa, in sitch an event, are plain,
and must be fulfilled. The first otlicer of
Missouri who is found engaged in exerei
sing the functions of his office in Van Bu
ren county, in this Territory, or the terri
tory in dispute, will he arrested and im
prisoned. To (o this, the sheriff of the
couity, it, we mistake not, is clothed with
power to call to his aid the militia of the
county; and should that prove to be inade
quate, to call upon the Commander-in
chief for aid from the militia of the Ter
ritory. Should these occurences, which
to'us seem ineviable,trans pire, what course
is it expected ofGov. Lucas to pursue ?
To us it seems he has no discretion in the
matter-he is bound to see that the laws
are faithfully executed, and to give, so far
as is in his power, protection to the citizen.
It may tharefore he reasonablv supposed,
that any and.every attempt by a foreign
power to exercise jurisdiction over any
part of Iowa, will be resisted by him vig
orously and determinedly. This is the
only conclusion which the slightest ac
qtaintance with the character of the man
will warrant; and we may here add thett
in this course the pdople' of lowa, ith
unexampled una.imity, will sustain him.
We hope we may he disappointed in
this anticipated state of things. and that
Missouri will not madly persist in her en
croachmemt upon our territory. If that
statebhonestly believes in the justice of
herctiim, why not await the decision of
Congress upon the subject ? The next
session of that body will most probably act
definitely on the matter-then why create
useless trouble now ? The refusal to a
wait or abide by the decision of the na
tional legislature, taken in connexion with
the immense advantages which a sover
eign state has in a contest with a weak and
dependent Territory, argues but little in
her favor. Even if the claims of Missouri
and Iowa to the disputed territory, should
be equal, we all know that at a time like
the present, when both the political parties
of the country mostly shape their course
of conduct with a view to erect, and with
'the aid of two distinguished Senators and
two members of the House of Representa

which ias been extended to the First Volume,
has induced the publisher to make every effort
in his power to reiider the work still more

by which lie has secured the assistance of a nu

operation lie hopes to. be able to render the
second.Volume almost entirely original in its
contents, as ivell as soithern in character.
While he would avoid making promises, which
lie might lack the ability to perform, yet his
confidence in his present resources, enables
him to assure those who have encouraged him
by their patronage in the infancy of his under

past, they will not fail to be pleased with the

a-timuates digestion, and keeps the intestinal
canail free from all obetruct ons. On the inferi
or surface of the.liver is a pieulihr bladder. in
which the bile is first preserved, being formed
by the liver firanmthe bood. Thence it passes
into the stomach aind intestines, aid regulates
the indigestion. Thus wc see when thire is a
deficiency of bilethe body is constantlycostive.
On the o.her hand, an overabundance of hilo
causes fireqnent nausea in the stomach; and of
ten promotes very severe attacks of disease,
which somretimes end in death.
Fevers are always preceded by symptoms
of a disordered stottach; as are also scrofulous'
disordeis, and all -sympathetic functional. or.
gantic orfebrile diseass. From the sante cause.
the natural and healhy detion of the beart, and
the whole vascular system is impaired and redt

palpitations, languid pulse. torpor of the limbs,
syncope, and even death itselt, in cousequence
of an overabundance of a peculiaroffensive sub

The approach ofbilious diseasesis at all times
at:en.ed by decided symptoms of an existing
diseased state of the stomach and- bowe's; i. e.

whenever the alimentary canal happeus to be
loaded wit irritating water, some derange

system, or ofsome particunlar organ or the body
is the certain result. and when this state hap.
pets to be united with any other symptoms of
disease, its effiects are always thereby much ag
gravated. The progress of organic obstruction
isolten so rapid as scarcely to admit oftime for
the application of such aid as is to be offered by
art, yet, in generai the premonitory symptoms
of gastric load are perceptible for a day or two'
previous to the feverish piaroism,a peried, whet
the most efficacious assistance may fie girdn, by
unloading'the stomach and alimentary cahil'
ofits irritating contents, and thus reducing tho'
stisceptibility of diseaae.
